47-year-old Gill Turner was shocked when her daughter asked if it was “okay to call someone a n*gger?” She was even more shocked, and disturbed, when she realized that her daughter’s question was prompted by a series of hateful, racist texts sent by local man Dean Sheridan.
As it turns out, though, 12-year-old Millie-Grace did a pretty remarkable job handling Dean without her mother’s help.
Dean, 36, fully admits to sending the messages, saying they were in defense of his daughter.
It appears that Millie-Grace was in the middle of a text conversation with Dean’s daughter when Dean took over and started texting Millie-Grace from his daughter’s phone. That’s how this drama began, and when Millie-Grace absolutely destroyed this 36-year-old:
Gill says that her daughter is on the autism spectrum. So she doesn’t correct people’s grammar to be snarky, it’s just an aspect of her personality.
“You just don’t expect that behaviour from a grown adult,” Gill told Metro. “He threatened me and Millie’s dad with physical violence. I texted him and said I had saved the messages and that I would be reporting it to the police.”
Dean claims that his daughter has been getting harassed by Millie-Grace and her “cronies” saying: “Yes I made some racial remarks regarding it, but I’m not going to take any of this regarding my daughter anymore.”
Police say an investigation is ongoing.
